Vintage Goodies

I posted this on my other blog and since it was sewing related I thought that I would post it here as well.

While at my local discount fabric store - a place that I have banished myself from because of my overabundance of fabric, where was I going with this. Ah yes, I found some vintage patterns at my local discount fabric store for FREE! Yep, they were just giving them away. I only took 5 oh I mean 6 - I was trying not to be greedy.

My fave for my daughter is Simplicity 7835 - I think those shirt dresses are adorable! For me, I'm feeling Simplicity 6531. I know it looks like a nightgown or house dress but I think we can make it cute for summer wear. I grabbed some zippers and buttons for 25 cents and (cough cough) 3.5 yards of fabric. I know, I know. I'll just have to sew 3.5 yards soon - that will keep the universe in balance right.

I love how Simplicity 9388 has the name Lillian written on it.

The pattern dates range from 1966 to 1971. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I grabbed the McCall's nightgown pattern. Now it's time to dream up ways to use these gems.
